PRIVACY POLICY FOR MSF PAEDIATRIC DAYS

 

 

This privacy policy applies for all the activities under the frame of the Paediatric Days. Our objective is to make sure that your privacy is respected and that your personal information is processed correctly by the MSF Paediatric Days Team. MSF Sweden takes responsibility for how personal data are processed, ensures that it is for the intended purpose only and that it is protected from unauthorized access.

It applies to all those whose personal information the MSF Paediatric Days collects and processes, for example when you:

  • Visit the Paediatric Days website or use our digital channels (such as our social media platforms), and register to attend the upcoming edition of the Paediatric Days;
  • Register to receive the Paediatric Days newsletters;

  • Others as may apply.

 

In those situations, the MSF Paediatric Team is processing personal data about you to the extent this data is needed for us to carry out our work and not retained for longer than needed for the specific purpose for which the data was originally collected.

 

WHEN DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?

  • Image or video - when you attend the event in person, or for speakers when you participate to the online event;
  • Questions asked during the live event.

 

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?

 

As a general rule, your personal data will not be used for any other purpose than those for which they were voluntarily provided to us. Your personal data are shared or transferred to third parties if such sharing or transfer is authorized by you or required to achieve the purposes for which you have provided them to us. It means that we may share your personal data with service providers, who help assist us in fulfilling our purposes.  Finally, we may share personal data if we are obligated to do so by law, court order or if such sharing is needed to fulfil a legal investigation.

The MSF Paediatric Days team operates globally and may have a need to transfer certain data to MSF entities located in countries outside the EEA. In the event the country where the data is transferred does not provide an adequate level of protection, we make sure to implement technical and organizational measures to protect your data.

 

WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR DATA?

Your information is only accessible by trained staff. We regularly review who has access to your information. As a general rule, your personal data will only be accessible insofar as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. We do comprehensive checks on any contractors before we work with them. We always put a contract in place that sets out how they manage the personal data they collect or have access to.

 

We use other companies to help us manage and store personal data and to carry out certain activities on our behalf (e.g. name and email for granting you access to the online event platform or the abstracts management platform) and we make sure to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures.

 

HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE?

 

The MSF Paediatric Teams has taken technical and organisational measures to secure personal data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored, or otherwise processed. To secure that personal data is processed in a secure and confidential manner, the MSF Paediatric Teams uses data networks which are hacker secured with fire walls and password safe per industry standard. To secure the privacy of the personal data that you share over internet, we may use encryption techniques when we save that data in our own systems.

 

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?

 

We keep your information for as long as it’s necessary in connection with the purposes defined. For instance, and as a general rule, we keep your email for the purpose of sending you a newsletter until you unsubscribe.

 

Personal data from the Participants list is kept for a maximum of 24 months.
